Five 'Anarchists' Arrested in Plot to Bomb Cleveland Bridge

Five men described by federal authorities as anarchists who were angry with corporate America and the government have been charged with plotting to bomb an Ohio bridge.

The men were arrested Monday night after unknowingly working with an FBI informant for months. They were charged with conspiracy and trying to bomb property used in interstate commerce.

All five had initial appearances in Cleveland federal court Tuesday afternoon and were ordered jailed without bond pending a hearing Monday.

The target of the plot was a bridge that carries a state highway over part of the Cuyahoga Valley National Park in the Brecksville area, about 15 miles south of downtown Cleveland.

The Occupy Cleveland group says the men were associated with the movement but don't represent Occupy Cleveland or its nonviolent views.
